Thanks for the help. We're trying to identify the make and model of this fan. Best, Zane

Its nothing special, its just a 1960s vintage spinner fan that usually those fans are really bad about going out of balance and shaking like mad, my parents used to have one in their entryway of their house and when you turned it on it rocked like crazy to the point that it just about fell off the ceiling because the fan was so badly out of balance. they are only worth the value of scrap metal as they are the worst ceiling fans ever made.

Not sure as there was many companies that made them, but more than likely it wasn't made in America, because by the time these fans were made a lot of the American fan manufacturers were outsourcing their manufacturing over to China.
